Logical Journey of the Zoombinis
Another weird little puzzle game that's just educational enough to trick teachers and school administrators into installing it, the Logical Journey of the Zoombinis is a puzzle game that's all about defining parameters. It's your job to save the Zoombinis, strange little blue guys with a variety of accessories and styles you can select before beginning your adventure.
There's something inherently charming about the Zoombinis, and the game doesn't have any creepy visions of hell like the similarly premised Lemmings series. You won't see the Zoombinis getting crushed, burnt, or drowning - no, this is a nice little game about figuring out which Zoombinis can do what, and where they can go. No math or letters to learn here - it's just pure logic, and one of the most fun games involving the process of elimination. Here's hoping this game (and others on this list) continue to get play on old, under-funded school computers across the nation.
